High Velocity Sports Bar in the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day
Looking for the best spot to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated all around the world. It is actually celebrated in more countries than any other national festival. And, here in San Antonio, we do our best to provide an awesome celebratory venue – join us at the High Velocity Sports Bar in the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa.
Why do we make sure to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day?
St. Patrick’s revelers thought wearing green clothing made one invisible to leprechauns. These fairy creatures would pinch anyone they could see (anyone not wearing green). People began to pinch those folks who didn’t wear green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers.
What is the favorite food and drink to have on St. Patrick’s Day?
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Irish-inspired food like a corned beef sandwich. And when it comes to drinking on St. Patrick’s Day, there are so many brew options available at the High Velocity Sports Bar. Come on in and make it a great St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
The High Velocity Sports Bar is situated in the lower level of the lobby at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa. It’s vibe is powered by the massive flowing television screens floating above the central bar. Sporting events of all kinds are always airing and the patrons are usually cheering on their favorite team. Football, basketball, soccer, hockey, baseball – college and professional – you name it and they’re watching it.
Right in the middle of this electrifying environment, the bartenders are crafting interesting and unusual cocktails and serving cold brews on tap. And, the chefs at High Velocity are always creating new and delightful dishes. Come and see for yourself and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with us.
You can also stop by the resort’s RiverTop Restaurant for a St. Paddy’s cocktail. In the world of cocktails, cocktail enthusiasts’ palates are ever-changing. Always keeping that in mind, our bartenders use quality ingredients to create fresh and innovative cocktails, such as this Leprechaun Punch from the RiverTop Restaurant at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa.
The Leprechaun Punch cocktail joins our other very popular RiverTop smoothie cocktails.
After a cool trip down the Lazy River, either a smoothie or a Leprechaun Punch might just be the ticket. Mixing in the blue curacao adds a distinct taste that is a little bit bitter and a little bit sweet – mixing in orange juice, bends this cocktail towards the sweeter side. Here’s the recipe to Do-It-Yourself at home.
½ ounce gin
½ ounce light rum
½ ounce vodka
1 ounce blue curacao
4 ounces orange juice
Mix all together, pour and enjoy!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day – March 17th!
